Reconstructive surgery

In addition to his plastic surgery activities, Dr. Cuylits also performs a lot of reconstructive surgery. Over the years, he has developed specific expertise in the following areas:

  • Hand surgery (
  • Reconstruction of the soft tissues of the lower limbs (chronic wounds – scarring problem – soft tissue tumours – complex reconstructions with microsurgical flaps)
  • Dermatosurgery and reconstruction of skin cancers located on the face, limbs or torso (melanomas – basal and squamous cell carcinomas -…).
  • Minimally invasive robotic surgery (flaps – microsurgical reconstructions) 
  • Correction of scarring after-effects of burns
  • Paediatric plastic surgery (trauma – scars – dermatosurgery – tumours – protruding or malformed ears – limbs or torso malformations)

He continues to teach the different reconstruction techniques that he masters at the Erasme Hospital and in the “Complementary Master of Plastic Surgery” at the ULB (Free University of Brussels), which he has chaired since 2017.
